Abstract: The paradigm the new European Higher Education Area places us in together with the teaching/learning guidelines and models demands the teacher adapt his/her function considering new methods which locate the students in the centre of this process. In this context the experience of the subject ‘Advanced forming and moulding techniques’ taught in 5th course of the Industrial Engineering qualification at the Bilbao Engineering Faculty (UPV/EHU), is presented. This subject must be taken by students opting for intensification in Mechanical Manufacturing. The subject is taught over tour months with 30 students per group on average, where a methodology based on Scoring Rubrics was set up.

Abstract: Since the birth of European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the higher education institutions of European countries have been involved in the complex process of re-designing of their curricula according to the new educational criteria oriented to the convergence of contents and methodologies in teaching university curricula. According to the principles pursued by the so named Bologna process, the present work is focused on the description of experiences accumulated by these authors in adaptation of their courses of manufacturing engineering, as a previous stage to complete re-formulation of study plans for engineering programmes that are taught in Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Industrial (ETSII) of Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena. The strategies followed for the enhancement of the interest of students towards the theoretical and practical teachings, and the promotion of traverse and specific competences specially associated to these courses are explained in this work, as well as the academic results provided by the new educational methodologies assumed for the teaching-learning process.

Abstract: Within the framework in which the Spanish universities are involved, the ECTS credit must be considered as the working hours needed for the students to acquire the subject related knowledge, capabilities and skills. The work presented in this paper consists of analyzing the data obtained by the surveys made by the students registered in manufacturing engineering subjects of the Technical University of Cartagena. This information lets us to estimate the workload needed for the subject adaptation process within the European higher education area framework.
